Take your lunch to work - August

As August starts on Tuesday new shiny thread all ready.   

I have four portions of soup ready in the freezer but an empty fridge and fruit bowl so need to shop bearing this in mind.

  • Thanks for running this challenge again! 
    I’m working in the office 6 days during August and will aim to bring my lunch to work on 5 days 
  • August is going to be a tricky month for me as I'm working away all month.
    I have bought noodle pots and multipacks of biscuits and crisps so I am going to go with minimising my spend.

    I did however take a chicken pasta salad to work today so I'm off the starting blocks

    Morning all.  I'm not feeling particularly organised but a few soup mugs in the freezer are helping!   Each day this week it's been soup and fruit.

    And I should have set off to the office, catch up later

    Morning,

    Yesterday i had a pot noodle that I bought a while ago that was lurking in the cupboard, I also had lots of fruit and snacks.

    Today, I have a ham and pickle sandwich and a tomato cuppa soup as well as other snacky bits.

    Determined that this month will be less spendy.

    Have a great day xx

  • Hi. I’m new to this forum. Hoping to join this challenge. 

    Today was day 1 for me. I work usually 3 days a week so hoping to be able to take lunch all month. Had x2 lovely Olive ciabatta rolls today with loads of spread, rocket and tomato as a filling. Delicious

    Everyone seems to be doing well😁.

    I've had three days of soup from the freezer so will need to replenish - was expecting one day but one oversleep and the whole week changed!

    WFH tomorrow so I'll be cooking at home, either an omelette or a chicken salad - with the other option in the evening.   
  • First working day of the month for me. Took couscous with cumin and chilli roasted carrots, feta and pomegranate seeds plus a pot of mango and strawberries for afternoon snack. I did eat a couple of biscuits during a meeting this morning but someone else bought them so don’t think they count 😉
